Some performance from Price.

Considering the record of 0 wins v MVG, Price has serious bottle and always plays his A game v him.

Final should be great, in comparison to what Wright v MVG would have been.

Price to beat Wright in the final.
Wright to lose to Price in the final.

Lot of talk about Duzzas bottle but I really don’t think he has it to win a big major in the pdc.

Think he’s going to end up being in the Jenkins, Hamilton group making the semis of a lot of tournaments maybe a few finals but not having the game to finish it off and get a big win.

Can see him going out early in the worlds if he gets a tough draw, he doesn’t look good at all in the short games

Disappointed with Duzza, needs some aggression in him, fabulous result for Price, hope he wins tonight. Didn’t like him when he first started playing darts in fact thought he was an arsehole, now I think he is a cracking player.

People said that in the BDO and they were also wrong!

World Championship is minimum first to 9. Best of 5 best of 5 with darts is 13-12.

No, i ask a question then say what I hope the answer is. I refer to booing etc from previous events. I take it that it has continued into this event from your response.

And he bottled it a few times before winning and even times he was massive favourite he nearly threw it away on two of the occasions.

Listening to his post match interview the other day he’s pretty frank about his chances in the pdc. He said he’s averaging 90 nearly every game but to win majors he’s got to get up to 100

Just came in from work to see Price beat MVG.

Didn't Sky+ this afternoon's darts, but looks like Price did well in a decent quality match.

So there’s your answer :grin:
He was the out and out favourite at the bdo and took time to not bottle it, he’s not going to have that chance against the best players in the world.

Should have won today at least 16-10 but missed double after double when it mattered.
